Diagnostic Procedures in Tuberculosis


Published 1940


This film courtesy of The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

DIRECTOR: Edgar Ulmer, Ph.D. SPONSOR: National Tuberculosis Association. PRODUCTION: Motion Picture Service Corporation. CAMERA: William Miller. PRODUCTION. SUPERVISER: J. Burgi Contner. CAST: Dr. Kendall Emerson, Managing Director of the NTA. NARA ARC Identifier: 98578

Aimed at the medical establishment, the film moves dryly and methodically through the stages of diagnosis and analysis of tuberculosis. The film is tediously academic, though fascinating, in part, for the fact that Ulmer’s directorial credit in the film reads Edgar G. Ulmer, PhD. Aimed as the film was at medical practitioners, the initials are likely an attempt on the part of the NTA to lend to this material a degree of credibility. Regardless of Ulmer’s fraudulent credentials, however, the film is set up as a lecture headed by Dr. Kendall Emerson, managing director of the National Tuberculosis Association. Directed by Edgar Ulmer.

Pretty dry TB film (excuse the pun) of various doctors speaking to the camera, some with props, about dealing with tuberclerosis.
